Time for Change!

Weds 17th June

4:30 – 6:00pm

COVID-19 shows the need for radical change in our food system. As landworkers, farmers and growers, we will look at what we need to disrupt, and what to build and strengthen to support a real transformation in our food system.

  • What are the narratives that we need to build?
  • What are the things that we need to disrupt?
  • What are the institutions and practical things that we can build and strengthen?
  • What would be truly transformative?
